Today I have a truly neat little item to show you guys. It’s another of the items owned by collector Robert Taylor, which he has graciously agreed to share with us here. But what is unique about this particular item is the fact it was owned by none other than Forest J. Ackerman himself.

It is a small desk clock that looks like a promotional item for Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. Forry added a photo of Vincent into it. Looks like it might have been a picture he snapped himself.

 Here is what Robert has to say about it…


I was messing around in the movie room and found that I had forgotten this Vinnie-related piece.  This is a little quartz “desk clock” from the Ackermansion.  It has a space for a photo, and Forry chose to make it a Vinnie clock!  I was so tickled when I acquired this with a group of other small items of Forry’s.  As Forry referred to himself as “The Poor Man’s Vincent Price”, finding this little Vinnie tribute made me all the happier.
